The yin of the GD is that they compile so many different genres into their own sound that while providing enjoyment of their own they also expose us to so many other forms of music. The Yang is that it takes work to break away and learn about all of their influencers.

What I do is discipline myself to always be mixing up what I listen to so eveything sounds fresh. What I have found to be a good way to find other artists is to read books on musicians I like and write down who influenced them. Pretty quickly I have then built a long and varied list to explore by checking CDs out at my library. Has done wonders for me and I hope it helps you.
